Hallo, I'd like to ask about probably trivial thing but could somebody explain the difference between plasma and serum? I need to asssay for C-peptide and anti-GAD from the human blood specimens and am looking for any helpful information. Thank you very much.

serum is the liquid part of blood AFTER coagulation, therfore devoid of clotting factors as fibrinogen. plasma is the liquid, cell-free (by centrifugation, for example) part of blood, that has been treated with anti-coagulants.
